IPL trade: A direct swap deal was completed between Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday (November 22). Therefore, Avesh will join the Royals in IPL 2024, while Padikkal will join the Super Giants. LSG management confirmed the development to cricbuzzsat.
In addition to his stint with Rajasthan Royals, Padikkal also played for Royal Challengers Bangalore previously. Having started his IPL career as a left-handed opener, the left-hander has had lukewarm returns at RR, particularly in the middle order role he has played in recent seasons. With Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock, Nicholas Pooran and Krunal Pandya also included, the Super Giants’ already left-heavy batting unit becomes that much heavier.
The story is similar for Avesh, who emerged as the highest wicket-taker for LSG in the 2022 season, but subsequently his form tapered off, and with Lucknow’s sluggish pitches not aiding pacers greatly, the 26-year-old experienced a decline in his performance. Avesh will be looking to redeem himself as the pitches in Jaipur are expected to make it easier for quick bowlers. Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Sen, and Prasidh Krishna are other domestic pacers Avesh will face.
Bereaved Sherfane Rutherford returns home from the IPL
After the death of his father, Sherfane Rutherford returned from the IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad recently signed the 23-year-old Guyanese batter to replace Jonny Bairstow, who withdrew from the UAE leg of the 2021 season.
The SRH family extends its heartfelt condolences to Sherfane Rutherford and his family on the passing of his father. Sherfane will be leaving the IPL bio-bubble to be with his family during this difficult time.
Rutherford was a key member of the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots team that won the CPL 2021 championship. The second-highest run scorer for the team, he scored three half-centuries in 262 runs at a strike rate of 127.18.
Rutherford’s departure is yet another blow to the Sunrisers, who have won just one game out of eight this season. Despite having Jason Roy as cover for the opening position, the 2016 champs will be without T. and Vijay Shankar for the upcoming games after the former tested positive for Covid-19 and the latter was identified as a close contact.
